Monster Hunter’s 3 Ultimate’s Duramboros Can Use His Tail Like A Hammer

By Ishaan . February 5, 2013 . 9:00am

Capcom have shared another monster profile from Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate—Duramboros, a brute wyvern that’s one of the new additions to the game.


Official name: Duramboros

Type: Brute Wyvern

Monster Hunter Tri introduced the Brute Wyvern class with monsters like the Barroth, Uragaan and the Deviljho. Now, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate brings subspecies of the old ones as well as a couple of new brute wyverns, such as the Brachydios (next blog) and the Duramboros!


Duramboros’ most distinctive feature is its large hammer-like tail, which is often used to pound the ground and generate small quakes or just smash its foes down. So, while you’ll want to avoid being on Duramboros’ ram-like horns, you’d also want to be wary of its tail.


One thing that is sure to make some of you scratch your heads is how the Duramboros can use its tail as a counter-weight to help it spin on its axis and somehow propel itself upward and drop down, causing earthquakes, damage and even some headaches.


Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be released on March 19th in North America and March 22nd in Europe for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

    Saw this in some gameplay, love to fight this thing not only is it super big and challenging but the armor made from it looks pretty boss.

    ROFLcopter is back. This was the most hilarious monster in P3rd.

  • DualCell

    Saw this on Youtube when I was watching some gameplay of Monster Hunter 3G HD or Tri Ultimate for Wii U. Man I was like this thing is going to be annoying to fight but then I saw some obvious patterns in its moves. :) Gonna be so much fun.

    The blademaster armor set and the switch-axe from this thing is badass as hell, this and the gobul are my favorite 3rd gen monsters to hunt.

    • I like those two also but I can’t help but have a strange love towards the King Ludoroth and god I also love fighting the Lagiacrus as my all time favorite. Definitely a great choice for the box art of Tri.

    Duramboros is way to easy at least in Monster hunter psp 3rd I know I have the imported version epic hard monster would be Ukanlos

    I AM scratching my head… in confusion over why it would do its spinning attack when it’s so easy to evade and to just wait for it to come down, achieving nothing. Though if you’re not careful, well…
